Nov 16: Tinariwen

Established in 1979 in Algeria by a group of Tuareg musicians from Mali, Tinariwen began as local collective that performed at weddings and gatherings of friends while much of the Tuareg community was in exile or refugee camps due to the political climate in their home nation. Their music, simultaneously low-key and folksy while also emotionally and politically charged, came to be described as ‘desert blues.’ They ultimately caught the attention of the French world music community and then gradually the rest of the globe started taking note. Tinariwen themselves describe their brand of melancholic, guitar-driven blues-rock as ‘assouf,’ a style of Tuareg music based in nostalgia. Check out their show at Tango on Thursday.

Thur Nov 16, 8pm. Tango, see event listing
